The Bystander The Bystander in the Sunday Advertiser has the
on Blkdom. following on elk. loin ami the local elks which in
justice to the order and the local lodge we give herewith.
There is an organizatien in Honolulu whose efforts in U'lialf of pro
moting the attractions of the Hawaiian Islands as a tourist resort are
little known. This organization is that of the Klks, three hundred ami
fifty men of this city, known at large as the "Rest People on Earth."
On almost every steamer that passes hy here is to lie found one or more
memlers of the antlered herd. They lo not pass by unrecognized, I nit
are given a royal welcome by Hawaiian brothers, entertained at their
well-appointed club, given the liest opportunities to see the finest of the
scenic wonders of the island metropolis, and those Klks never fail to
write back to their own lodges of the hospitality received here, and ad
vise other brothers to come out and take a look.
It is little wonder that the Elks are lcconiing one of the most im
portant and popular lodges in the United States; that its herd is increas
ing by leaps and Uunds, and its browsing grounds extending to every
portion of the American Republic. Not only is the Elk welcomed every
where be goes by other Elks, but the wives and women members of his
family are given attentions little known of by the community.
An Elk's wife, or sister, or daughter, comes to Honolulu, jnissibly
alone. She is entitled to carry the Elks' emblem. As soon as the lodge
knows of her presence in town a beautiful louquet of flowers, generally
roses, is sent to her apartment at the hotel, and during her stay every
effort is put forth to make her stay pleasant, and whatever ditliulties may
arise are removed by the lodge.
Many years ago communities looked upon the Elks as a lody of roy
stering fellows, good fellows, lut all generally given over to seeing the
rosy side of life. Good fellows they are, but the idea of being roysterers
is not fostered by the society, and the grand lodge is grad.ually becoming
stricter ami stricter in its regulations, if so they may lie. called, with re:
gard to the conduct of the members. Each lodge, and Lodge (516 of Ho
nolulu is no exception, has more serious things to think of than mere
rounds of pleasure. There is an earnest plan at the foundation of the
success of the local lodge. Careful financing, the upbuilding of a lodge
w hich is to take an important part in the serious development of a good
town to live in and the cultivation of brotherly relations which extend
Wyond the mere drinking of a health, form the basis of Elkdoni today.
The Elks believe in looking out for each other, in helpinga weak brother,
seeing that none are in' want should Dame Fortune cease to smile upon
their individual efforts, and in relieving the distress of widows and or
phans. Next month, when Honolulu holds its Washington'? birthday carnival,
a big delegation of Elks from Utah will arrive here to see Honolulu and
its attractions and to participate in the carnival which the local lodge is
backing. It's a long way to come, but they're coming. They're coming
largely because some Salt Lake Elks were royally entertained here about
a year ago, and "those Elks carried the news home and told their brothers
if they wanted a good time to take a trip to Honolulu. That was good
When the Cleveland was here last week, no people were lictter or more
fittingly entertained than the Elks almard. The reception at the Elks'
hall was a grand affair, and the Cleveland Elks probably saw more of
Honolulu and the island than any other itcople on Imard. And the Elks
who will be alioard the Cleveland when she arrives here next month will
lie just as royally entertained.
Albert and When King Alltert on ascending the throne promised to
the Kongo, continue his father's "'just and humane rule" in the
Kongo, many were of the opinion that the young King really wished to
say that he would try to do it even lictter than his father had done. The
early acceptance of the resignation of the governor-general of that much
discussed corner of the world lends additional weight to their contention.
It must Ut that King Alltert is ierfectly conscious of the fact that all the
nations are, figuratively shaking, craning their necks to watch what lie
is doing in the Kongo, but he is too polite, of course, to mention the

Two weeks ago Sunnay, the Ka
gawa Hotel was burglarized and
twenty, five cent pieces; twenty one,
ten cent pieces and four quarters
and a few foreign coins of various
denominations were taken. The
thief also took a fews cigars.
The police were notified and the
local officer, Manuel Sequeira, at
once set to work on the case.
The first clue he had was when he
saw Ernest An Nee smoking a cigar
of the brand stolen. Following up
this clue he at last became con
vinced of the guilt of the young man
and at last phoned to the police of
fice to hold him there until he could
arrive and swear out a complaint-
Ah Nee confessed to having com
mitted .the crime and on his plead
ing guilty be was sentenced to
ninety days in jail.
Much credit is due the police
force and esjx cially Manuel Sequeira
for the clever work in connection
with bringing the man to justice.
